Hope you all are doing well. Today we all of us have received a mail that
''As you know, WikiProject India is celebrating the 8th birthday of
Wikidata this October and on this occasion, CIS-A2K will be sending
Wikidata special merchandise to all Indian affiliates and communities upon
request as well as active Wikidata contributors residing in India.
Affiliates and Communities
All Indian affiliates are welcome to request for Wikidata special
merchandise and/or infrastructure. There is no need for community
notification. But, affiliate contacts or board members or executive
committee members or people in similar positions, who can represent the
affiliate, need to do the request.
All Indian language communities, except those who have geographical
affiliates, are welcome to request for Wikidata special merchandise
requests. But, the community should decide on-wiki and have clear consensus
to whom the merchandise will be sent.
Indian language communities having geographical affiliates are requested to
discuss any need with their respective affiliates first and ask them to
request them on their behalf.
Only one request for each affiliate or language community will be accepted.
It is expected that the requests for merchandise and/or infrastructure
should be practical enough to be used by community members and within the
budget of *maximum INR 10,000* for each affiliates.
CIS-A2K will not design for the merchandise. If any custom design is
preferred, the affiliate or the community should upload it to Wikimedia
Commons as svg format and send the link to CIS-A2K, which will be taken
care of, while printing it. The design should be Wikidata specific only.
If this sounds interesting, please feel free to request here -
Here is the right time for us to grab this opportunity. What do you think?
Can we plan some innovative ideas? I request you all to provide some of
your thoughts so that our community can take benefits from CIS-A2k. It can
be list of books which the community can buy for further use or it can be
merchandise like t.shirt or mementos etc. Hence, feel free to share your
ideas at the earliest.
